So pathetic how we lost Father U-Turn to Kidney related illness. He was reported dead on Sunday, 17th of November, 2013 after spending 10 days in a local hospital.

This guy rose from poverty as an orphan, built a successful career as a songwriter, recording artiste, TV presenter and performer. He was only 36 years old, with a wife and five children who would have to feel the pain of fatherlessness for the rest of their lives.

Father U Turn was from Kabba-Bunu in Kogi State. That was where he started as a radio and TV presenter.

Later he got a deal with Ultima Records where Nelson Brown produced his first album which was adjudged successful. Two hit songs, ‘African Culture‘ and ‘Shakara‘ threw him into national limelight. In his music career, he had worked with Daddy Showkey, Daddy Fresh and Pasuma who featured in the hit single “Yetunde”.

So painful, and i keep wondering what's going on with people's kidney these days?

International Actress Jennifer Oguzie at the West Hollywood Halloween Parade

International Actress Jennifer Oguzie Celebrates Her Friends Birthday(Victoria Iheanacho) at the West Hollywood Halloween Parade!

Halloween is a holiday celebrated on the night of October 31.  The word Halloween is a shortening of All Hallows' Evening also known as Hallowe'en or All Hallows' Eve.
The history of Halloween has evolved.  The activity is popular in the United States, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada, and due to increased American cultural influence in recent years, imported through exposure to US television and other media, trick-or-treating has started to occur among children in many parts of Europe, and in the Saudi Aramco camps of Dhahran, Akaria compounds and Ras Tanura in Saudi Arabia. The most significant growth and resistance is in the United Kingdom, where the police have threatened to prosecute parents who allow their children to carry out the "trick" element. In continental Europe, where the commerce-driven importation of Halloween is seen with more skepticism, numerous destructive or illegal "tricks" and police warnings have further raised suspicion about this game and Halloween in general.

What do you think about Halloween?

A leopard never changes its skin, they say. Gist is agog that the erstwhile Executive Secretary of the Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC), Dr. Ahmed Modibbo Mohammed is presently scheming to return to the ‘juicy’ position of Executive Secretary again in the same parastatal, an office he left nearly a year ago after serving a full tenure of five years.

If you recall, on the 11th of May 2010, a US based online media outfit, Sahara-reporters, gave details of the multi-billion-naira scam spearheaded by the erstwhile Executive Secretary

The media establishment alleged that the then, UBEC boss and his then newly-wedded wife, Aishatu Dahiru Mohammed, operating as the leader of a syndicate, used phony companies “to skim off billions of naira earmarked for the running of Nigerian primary and junior secondary schools.”

Going further, Sahara reporters said that Apart from his criminal record as a serial looter, Modibbo also has a reputation of being a master schemer. Sahara reporters gave details of how he wangled his way to become the UBEC boss despite his bad antecedent at his previous job as the boss the National Teachers’ Institute (NTI) and the fact that his point of entry into the commission fell short of the requisite requirements of a degree or certificate in education.

The erstwhile UBEC boss is also alleged to be in the vanguard of staunch supporters of known enemies of the Goodluck Jonathan administration. It is believed that he is using part of the money he stole from the coffers of these parastatals to give financial support to the presidential ambition of some opposition parties’ flag-bearers. This is aside other reports alleging that a large chunk of the stolen billions from the UBEC coffers may have been diverted to the self-acclaimed Islamist terrorist group, Boko Haram which has killed hundreds of thousands of Nigerians in cold blood.

This is why it is so shocking that modibbo who some media outfits gave graphic details of how he spent millions of naira to support arch-enemies of President Goodluck Jonathan's) political ambition can be thinking of making a return to office under the same Jonathan.

We are reliably informed that he had recruited the support of some of his ‘loyalists’ in high places of power who partook in the loot of his over N50 Billion during his 12 Years reign as head of two Education support Agencies, plundering the resources of these two outfits namely the National Teachers’ Institute (NTI) and the Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC), or how can one explain the underground moves some of his northern godfathers had been engaging in, purportedly appealing and lobbying the president on his behalf.

How can one comprehend the gist that Dr. Modibbo is still interested in returning to the position after all the atrocities he had been accused of?

Nigerians reading this piece, what do you think the return of this serial looter and immoral man to the agency portends for the future of the country’s education? What kind of legacy does the Goodluck Jonathan’s administration wants to leave for us in this very sensitive sector?

Jennifer Oguzie -
Barely being able to make ends meet and working at every job he can find, Hector Chavez turns to his fighting roots to pay for his gravely ill young son's medical bills. When his amateur Mixed Martial Arts videos go viral and earn him the recognition of the world's top MMA federation he is given a chance to go into the cage against the World Champion. A dream opportunity becomes a fight for his life when he learns the Champion's last opponent is in critical condition in the same hospital as his son. Hector must risk it all so his son can have the surgery he needs to survive.

 HECTOR CHAVEZ: Hector Echavarria
Idolized by millions in Latin America, and a legendary Martial Arts champion in his native Argentina, Hector Echavarria, brings to the Hollywood film industry a background of business success, acting experience, and martial arts expertise.
In addition to producing and starring in his own films, Hector has become an industrial force- with his own clothing line, martial arts federation, real estate holdings, children’s toys and action figures, and an entertainment production company. And now, with his multi-picture slate of action films in which he stars and produces, others are calling him the Tyler Perry of the Hispanic action market.
From the beginning Hector Echavarria has exceeded all expectations. A sickly child, his mother enrolled him in martial arts school. As a teenager, he was winning fights against much bigger opponents in the mean alleys of Corrientes, Argentia and moved his skills into the ring, where became a legendary martial arts champion. For years he starred in an ultra-popular Latin American television series Brigada, based on the three-film series Los Exterminators, in which he made his acting debut. Even a comic-strip for children was created, following Hector’s real-life exploits.
His plan to capture the United States and world markets has been to hone his filmmaking expertise, starting with a multi-picture deal to produce and star in a series of action films distributed on Blue Ray and DVD by Lionsgate. These included Death Warrior, Unrivalled, Confessions of a Pit Fighter, also starring Armand Assante, Flavor Flav and Oscar nominated John Savage, Never Surrender (which he also directed), and the horror film Lake Dead (for After Dark Films).
He was recently inducted into the United States Martial Arts Hall of Fame, was named “Full Contact Fighter of the Year” and held the World Martial Arts Championship and the World Kickboxing Championship.
Now, with the upcoming Chavez: Cage of Glory, which will have a multi-city rollout beginning in September, 2013, Hector directed the film and co-stars with respected actors Danny Trejo (Machete, Machete Kill, Grindhouse, From Dusk Until Down), Steven Bauer (Scarface, Traffic), James Russo (Open Rage, Donnie Brasco, Public Enemy and the NBC hit TV show Vegas) and also with Hector’s martial arts student and UFC superstar, Heath Herring . 
Danny Trejo (Mondo) has become of Hollywood’s favorite bad guys. Early on in his life, Trejo faced a lot of problems on the streets of Los Angeles, became a known street fighter and eventually landed in jail, which lead him to clean up his life. Soon after his release his acting career began, and now he is one of the most recognizable Latino actors in film and television. Trejo is known for memorable roles in Grindhouse, the Machete films, and Heat, as well as hit TV shows Sons of Anarchy, Breaking Bad and Bones.

Patrick Kilpatrick (John Stone) is well known for his notable villain roles alongside action stars, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Bruce Willis, Schwarzenegger, and Steven Seagal. He has made over 85 appearances in movies and on television, including Star Trek, The X Files, and 24.
James Russo (Tony) might be one of the industry’s most prolific actors- he is credited in over 90 films. Russo is best known for his roles in Beverly Hills Cop and Donnie Brasco, his most recent feature appearance was in the highly praised opening scene of Django Unchained. Russo is also a talented screenwriter, who wrote the film Motel, starring Robert DeNiro, to be released later this year.

WIZKID ARRESTED: E-247 reports

Starboy, Wizkid after several weeks of hide and seek with the Nigerian Police  following reports of a breach of contract, finally showed up. His appearance led to his arrest and subsequently, he was quizzed by the policemen of Zone 2, Lagos to explain why he collected the sum of N500, 000.00 from some students of the University of Lagos to perform at the botched CONCERT of LIFE UNILAG billed for May21, 2013. The aggrieved students, E24-7 reliably gathered subsequently reported the matter at the Police State HQ, Ikeja where the 23year old singer was invited to come and clear himself of the allegation. His claim for his absence was an international engagement.
Apparently miffed by his attitude, the students took the case to the office of the Assistant Inspector General of Police, Zone2, Lagos where he was summoned to report on Friday, June 14, 2013. The invitation letter was received on his behalf by his dad, Alhaji Balogun at his Shitta, Surulere, Lagos residence.   Again, his failure to show up angered the police officers who did not entertain the lawyer he sent to represent him claiming his absence was due to the auto accident he had recently.
Today, Wednesday, 19 June, 2013, when he showed up, he came in the company of his manager, Godwin Tom and his lawyer.  In his statement, he claimed that he has never met the students who alleged  that he received the sum of N500, 000.00 from them and never showed up for performance. He was later detained alongside his manager briefly before his lawyer took steps to bail both of them.
E24-7 MAGAZINE’s checks revealed that  one or two among the  group of students were childhood friends of Wizkid and he simply offered to do the concert for them at the ridiculously discounted fee, which prompted them to have spent money on publicity on and off campus and  all media platforms.
Reliable sources informed E24-7MAGAZINE that some of the students and Wizkid actually attended ijebu Ode Grammar School, Ijebu Ode, Ogun State together and he actually gave his ECOBANK account details where the said amount was paid April 29, 2013. There is also proof of sms conversations to ratify their claims.
Pending the outcome of further investigations, the Police authorities have fixed another date for the two parties to report.

BREAKING NEWS: News of the death of veteran Fuji musician, Fatai Rolling Dollars is filtering in at the moment. Fatai was born 22nd July 1926, and became famous in the 60s and 70s; Rolling Dollar was known for his verve and dexterity on the guitar.
The 85 years old musican died this morning, Wednesday, June 12, 2013, at Marritol Hospital, Sam Sonibare Street, off Lawanson Road, Surulere, Lagos. His death was confirmed to E24-7 MAGAZINE by one of his surviving wives, Funmilola (Moshood's mum). "Yes, Baba is dead. I was called ths morning that he is dead. I was in the hospital till late yesterday night but I was not allowed to see him. I'm on my way to the hospital again."

Fatai Rolling Dollars

His music break came in 1953 when he collaborated with master guitarist, J.O. Araba and tenor sax, Ishola Willie Payne to play at the exclusive Island Club in Lagos. Their Afro Skittle band adopted Ghanaian palm wine music to Yoruba highlife sounds, a fusion that deeply influenced up-and-coming artists like Fela Kuti,Sunny Ade and Ebenezer Obey (whom he taught to play the guitar). In the early days of independence, the Afro Skittles recorded several 78-rpm vinyl songs for Philips, spurning hits like Ranka Dede and Ogba oya ya. Rolling Dollars however disappeared from the music scene for about twenty-five years before making a come-back in 2003 when he got a new lease of life after years in the doldrums, through Asiwaju Bola Tinubu who revived his career and fortunes, after the Liaison de France was brought back into public consciousness.
May his soul rest in peace. Please leave your condolence (Use OPEN ID, then login in with your email or Facebook address.)
